Holland House Marinade & Grilling Tips
· Marinate your meat. Marinating is a great way to add flavor and save money by tenderizing tougher, cheaper cuts of meat. A well-prepared marinade can help an amateur on the grill prepare food that tastes like it was prepared by an experienced grill master!
· Select your marinade elements. Marinades vary from recipe to recipe, but they all generally contain three basic components – oils, acids and seasonings. Oils lock in the natural flavor and prevent vegetables from drying out, while acids allow flavors to be absorbed. Seasonings provide the unique flavor. Garlic, ginger and herbs are the most common marinade seasonings.
· Keep an eye on the time. As a general rule, the longer food is left to marinate, the more flavorsome it will become. Small or tender cuts, such as lamb and beef fillets, chicken breasts and seafood, require shorter marinating times (usually two to four hours). Larger or tougher cuts such as leg, rump or shoulder will need longer (usually four to six hours). Never marinate in aluminum, cast iron or copper, as these metals will react with the acids and salts, resulting in off flavor.
· Use the right tools. When grilling, always use tongs to turn the meat. A fork should never be used as it will punch holes in the meat and allow the natural juices to escape, causing the meat to lose flavor and become chewy.
· Don’t rush it. Meat will tell you when it’s ready to flip. If the meat is still hanging onto the grill, it’s not ready to flip. Once a good sear is established, it will release on its own.

Holland House Recipe: Marsala Peppercorn Tri Tip Kabob
PREP TIME: 20 minutes
• 1 cup HOLLAND HOUSE Marsala Cooking Wine
• 1/3 cup brown sugar
• 1/2 cups olive oil
• 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
• 1/2 Tablespoons rosemary
• 1 1/2 Tablespoons freshly crushed peppercorn
• 1 1/2 lbs. tri tip steak, cut into 2-inch cubes
• Fresh vegetables (onion, zucchini, mushrooms, peppers), cut into bite-sized pieces.
• Kabob skewers, bamboo or metal
Combine cooking wine, brown sugar, olive oil, garlic, rosemary and peppercorn in a large bowl and mix until well blended. Taking care not to poke yourself, thread the meat and vegetables onto the skewers. Lay the finished kabobs on a large tray and pour the marinade over the top, coating all the pieces well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours, turning the kabobs occasionally to coat the pieces with sauce.
Lay kabobs on a heated grill and brush with leftover marinate. Turn every 4-5 minutes until the meat is cooked through.
Note: If using bamboo kabob skewers, soak in water for 20-30 minutes before using to reduce burning
